EXCLUSIVE: In his first regular series role in almost a decade, Tom Sizemore is set to co-star opposite Ethan Hawke in Fox’s drama pilot Exit Strategy, a high-octane procedural about a team of five experts associated with the CIA led by Eric Shaw (Hawke) who are deployed when a CIA operation goes bad to extract the ones involved before it’s too late. Sizemore will play Jonathan Marks, a veteran CIA spymaster and mentor to Shaw who is the Exit Strategy unit’s LOGPAC (support officer). A man who has been everywhere and done everything, Marks is the man who can get you anything, anywhere, anytime. Sizemore, repped by Global Artists Agency, last did a pilot in 2002, the drama Robbery Homicide Division, which was picked up to series and had a brief run on CBS. He has since done arcs on CBS’ Dr. Vegas and Starz’s Crash.
Eric Winter, who has been recurring on CBS’ The Mentalist this season, has been cast in Fox’s drama pilot Weekends at Bellevue. Based on Julie Holland’s memoir, Bellevue centers on Ellie (Lauren Ambrose), the psychiatrist in charge of the weekend shift of Bellevue Hospital’s psychiatric unit. Winter, repped by ICM and Brillstein, will play a scruffy and sexy doctor attending in the ER.
